EIGHT young people from Milford Haven bagged themselves some new skills recently, when they spent the day cleaning up the coast with the national park.

On Wednesday, March 12, the GET IT project from Milford Youth Matters went out with rangers from Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority (PCNPA) for a day of volunteering at Dale Fort.

Everybody got stuck in, with tasks including widening and flattening the path, cutting back hedges, sawing down trees, and collecting 14 bags of rubbish.

GET IT helps people young people aged 16 to 25 who are not in employment, education or training to gain essential skills and help them into work.
